Jaguars to close on Monday

3 March 1962

Arrangements are complete for the second one-day token stoppage in engineering and shipbuilding on Monday.
Mr H. G. Barratt, general secretary of the Confederation of Shipbuilding and Engineering Unions, said yesterday that he expected it to be as successful as the first one, which was held on February 5 in protest against the rejection of pay and hours claims.

The employers reported an 80 per cent strike in engineering and an almost total stoppage in shipbuilding The two employers' federations have again advised their member firms to stay open on Monday. Several engineering firms have already announced that they will close. At the Jaguar factory yesterday notices were posted requesting manual workers not to report for work. The company are anxious to avoid a repetition of their experience last time, when, because two men worked, a week-long strike developed.
